Facts about Annie

  • Breed: Domestic Mediumhair
  • Color: Orange Or Red Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Medium
Annie came off the street, pregnant and very, very shy. Some neighbors wanted her kittens but not her, so after being spayed and vaccinated, I brought her to my house to see if she could be domesticated.

She likes to sleep under the couch or in boxes and comes out to rub my ankles when I'm sitting on the couch.She has started jumping up on the couch next to me and rubbing her head into my leg, then rolling over and arching her back. I can rub her belly for a while until she gets spooked and jumps down again. Sometimes if just a few other cats are around, she will rub my ankles when I am cooking or washing dishes. She doesn't seem to be fussy about food, but I don't yet know what type of litter is her favorite.

As of now she doesn't like to be picked up for more than a second but does like being scratched behind the ears and neck. Slowly she is becoming more used to her surroundings and a little less shy. There is one cat in particular here who seems to pick on her or just wants to play, but she doesn't defend herself; she goes back under the couch and the other cats seem to respect that as her place. There are other cats she rubs against so clearly likes affection.

Annie has a lovely collar of white around her neck and breast bone. She is extremely demure, gentle and sweet. She gets along with the other rescues who live here, but it might be good for her to be in a place where she is the only cat—or just has one or two other companions. I think she will learn to be less skittish if there are fewer animals around her. In this sense she has "special needs." Based on her progress so far, she makes a wonderful pet. I haven't been able to clip her nails, but she has never scratched or been mean; she only gets scared and tries to get down when picked up.

Annie is truly lovely. She needs a patient adopter who can give her lots of affection. This adopter will get plenty of affection back!

Come Meet Our Pets...

We regularly participate in adoption events with North Brooklyn Cats, a rescue group based in Williamsburg/Greenpoint. Their adoption events are every Sunday from 2-6 PM at Muddy Paws Pet Supplies, 447 Graham Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11211. We also have potential adopters visit our fosters at our home by appointment.

Our Adoption Process...

Potential adopters meet with us and the cat(s) either at our home or an adoption event. Potential adopters complete a simple adoption application, which we review and approve. If all parties are in agreement on the adoption we set a time to deliver the cat(s) to the adopter's home. Upon receiving the cat(s), adopters are asked to sign an adoption contract and for a tax-deductible donation fee of $100 per cat. Adopters are emailed all vet records and related forms.
